Success – Claim Against Local Council

Mr S was walking along a pavement near his home when his walking stick went down into the hole by the side of the manhole cover causing Mr S to fall over an injure himself. The local council initially disputed the claim stating that the hole was not present and dangerous at the time of their last inspection prior to Mr S’s accident occurring. We were able to obtain evidence from google map images that the defect had been present for over a year prior to the accident occurring but the council still continued to deny the claim and we had to issue legal proceedings against the council on behalf of Mr S. The Council just before the trial started finally saw sense and admitted they were at fault and made Mr S an offer to settle his claim which he accepted.
